Allen has been involved in the SMTA since 1988, one of the initial presidents of the San Diego Chapter. Allen comments, "The goal of the SMTA was then, and still is, to share knowledge so that our industry can prosper from the experience of its members. I have been fortunate to be a speaker in many chapters around the country. It is an educational experience for both the attendees and me. It's a pleasure to be back on the board of directors of the San Diego Chapter and we look forward to an exciting year of information exchange and reinstituting our EXPO and Tech Forum on November 5th, 2019."
